Why Clara Oswald should stay in Doctor Who

13 hours ago | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

Reports suggest that far from leaving, Jenna Coleman is signing on for more episodes of Doctor Who. Great – Clara is a wonderful companion who has finally found the right Doctor

On Friday, the Mirror reported that Jenna Coleman will be staying on in Doctor Who as Clara Oswald after all.The production team has been expectedly circumspect about Coleman’s future on the show, refusing to comment on what they call ‘speculation’. But her coyness in every interview she has given this year, coupled with the fact that the Christmas special is called Last Christmas, has given fans good reason to believe that the festive episode will be her swansong. Now, apparently not.

If she is staying on, then I’m thrilled. Just about the only consensus on this year’s divisive series was how well Clara has been written and played. While Peter Capaldi’s status as Peter Capaldi gets him a free pass, »

13 hours ago | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

The actress has long been rumored to be departing the show and not feature in the new season next year. Showrunner Steven Moffat told The Hollywood Reporter earlier this month that while Peter Capaldi was aboard as the lead for next season, she had yet to sign up.

Doctor Who: BBC won't comment on Jenna Coleman "speculation"

14 hours ago | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

The BBC has declined to comment on "speculation" regarding Jenna Coleman's future on Doctor Who.

A report from The Mirror claimed that Coleman will remain with the sci-fi series into its ninth series, despite speculation that she would depart this Christmas.

The story alleged that her character Clara would then depart midway through Doctor Who's ninth series.

"It's just speculation," a BBC spokesperson told Digital Spy. "Viewers will have to watch the Christmas episode to find out."

The ninth series of Doctor Who will shoot in early 2015 for broadcast later that year, with Peter Capaldi returning to the show for his second full series.

This year's festive special, 'Last Christmas', has been confirmed for a December 25 slot on BBC America and is expected to air the same day on BBC One.

Doctor Who: 10 Things Karen Gillan Has Done Since Leaving

14 hours ago | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

BBC

It only feels like yesterday the Tardis crash landed in Amy Pond’s back garden. But time really does fly whenever that blue box is concerned, because that was in fact four years ago and Amy’s alter ego, Karen Gillan, has come a long way since then.

Prior to becoming a household name, Karen enjoyed small parts in TV shows such as Rebus and The Kevin Bishop Show, as well as a guest role in Series 4 of Doctor Who, in which she played a Soothsayer in The Fires Of Pompeii.

Born and raised in Inverness, the Scottish actress then achieved mainstream success when she was chosen to become the Eleventh Doctor’s fiery companion Amy Pond. She made her on screen debut as the promiscuous kissogram in The Eleventh Hour in April 2010 and has described her stint on the show as the best years of her life.

Doctor Who: 9 Things That Must Happen In Series 9

15 hours ago | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

BBC, Deep Breath

It feels like Peter Capaldi’s debut series in the Tardis was over before it had truly began, but the future is now looking very bright for Doctor Who and the era of the Twelfth Doctor is only just getting started.

Throughout Series 8 we were shown a much darker side to our beloved hero as he, as well as Clara, tried to get to grips with his latest incarnation, who has so far been much more removed and less reliable than his most recent predecessors.

Inevitably, Capaldi’s complex characterisation of the Time Lord has been the subject of intense discussion amongst fans.

Some viewers immediately liked to his more mysterious persona, while others haven’t been able to take to his fiercer temperament. Despite his darker personality, though, the man himself has reassured fans that he’s still the “funny, joyful, passionate, emphatic and fearless” Time »

Torchwood’s Catherine Tregenna For Doctor Who Series 9?

Philip Bates is a writer at Kasterborous Doctor Who News and Reviews - All the latest Doctor Who news and reviews with our weekly podKast, features and interviews, and a long-running forum.

Ah, now here’s some welcome news! Torchwood scribe, Catherine Tregenna will, according to her online CV, be writing for Series 9 of Doctor Who! Tregenna will be the first female writer since Helen Raynor, who wrote the slightly-wonky Daleks in Manhattan/ Evolution of the Daleks (2007), and the far-more-enjoyable The Sontaran Stratagem/ The Poison Sky (2008). People have been giving showrunner, Steven Moffat...

Doctor Who Christmas update: synopsis, Jenna Coleman rumours

18 hours ago | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

It wouldn't be Christmas without some wild speculation about what you're getting. As such, here's our Doctor Who update...

It's Christmas time, there's no need to be afraid... Unless, of course, you travel with the Doctor, in which case being afraid is a fairly constant requirement. It is a superpower, after all.

Today, we've learned a little about what will be plaguing the Doctor and Clara this Christmas in the episode Last Christmas from a nice vague synopsis which has been doing the rounds...

"The Doctor and Clara face their Last Christmas. Trapped on an Arctic base, under attack from terrifying creatures, who are you going to call? Santa Claus!"

As ever, we're not getting much info here. People are predicting a strong John Carpenter influence, but we'd be wary of predicting too much gore at Christmas tea-time.

Elsewhere, there's been some juicy speculation about Jenna Coleman's future on Doctor Who. »

Doctor Who Christmas Special Will Be Titled "Last Christmas"

27 November 2014 10:01 AM, PST | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

The 2014 Doctor Who Christmas Special title has been revealed to be "Last Christmas." Upon reading the title, the Wham! song of the same name is now playing in my head (and maybe yours). Is this title a hint at this being Jenna Coleman's (Clara Oswald) last episode? I hope it's not, I really like the dynamic she has with Peter Capaldi (The Doctor).

He’s currently playing the role of Mr. Collins in the feature film adaptation of Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, and now he’s been cast as the lead in a new zombie movie called Patient Zero. Smith will star opposite Natalie Dormer in Screen Gem’s film production.

According to Deadline, the story centers on an “unprecedented global pandemic of a super strain of rabies [which] has resulted in the evolution of a new species driven by violence. An inexplicably immune human survivor with the ability to communicate with this new species must spearhead a hunt for Patient Zero in order to find a cure to save his infected wife and humanity.”

Jack Whitehall: I want to play Doctor Who villain

27 November 2014 4:39 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Jack Whitehall has revealed to Digital Spy that he is hoping for a call from Steven Moffat about a role in Doctor Who.

The stand-up and Fresh Meat actor described the BBC sci-fi show as a dream job, and pointed out that Moffat had clearly already seen his acting skills because he had cast a number of his co-stars in series 8.

"I'd love to do Doctor Who. I need to corner Steven Moffat," said Whitehall.

"He had Zawe [Ashton] (Fresh Meat) and Michelle Gomez (Bad Education) in the last series - they were both very good in it."

Describing the sort of character that he would want to play, Whitehall said that he would take inspiration from Alan Rickman in Die Hard.

Catherine Tate on Doctor Who return: 'I can't see Donna coming back'

27 November 2014 2:46 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Catherine Tate has ruled out a return to Doctor Who.

However, the comedian and actress revealed that she is keen to work with her old co-star David Tennant again in a web-chat on The Guardian site.

Tate played Donna Noble on Doctor Who. Initially making a one-off appearance in the 2006 Christmas special, she became a regular for the fourth series in 2008 and made her final outing in Tennant's 2010 swan-song.

"Unfortunately I think Donna's storyline would prevent her from coming back, because any memory of the Doctor, of her time travelling with him, and the adventures she embarked on, would kill her," Tate wrote. "So I can't see a storyline being able to bring her back."

Of the show's current star Peter Capaldi, she added: "I think Peter is wonderful in the role, and I'm really enjoying the eighth season. He's a fantastic actor, and his wit and intelligence shines."

Paddington movie review: please look in on this movie, thank you

26 November 2014 9:00 AM, PST | www.flickfilosopher.com | See recent FlickFilosopher news »

Adorable. So witty and compassionate and bittersweet and just the right little bit of snarky that you will cry tears of joy from the perfection of it. I’m “biast” (pro): love the cast

I’m “biast” (con): was worried about CGI creepiness

I have read the source material (and I am indifferent about it)

(what is this about? see my critic’s minifesto)

So, a small brown illegal immigrant — he doesn’t even have a passport — sneaks over the border into the United Kingdom… and is instantly welcomed into the home of a quintessentially English family in London, complete with a kooky elderly kinswoman of unspecified relation and a house that is the epitome of storybook chic.

And it is adorable.

Adorable.

Paddington is, in fact, so cute and witty and compassionate and bittersweet and just the right little bit of snarky and positively downright altruistic that »

5 Doctor Who Writers Who Should Return For Series 9 (Plus 5 New Ones)

26 November 2014 6:53 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

BBC

Now that the latest series has reached its dramatic conclusion (hands up if you’re still recovering from the finale!), the attention of Doctor Who fans has now swiftly turned to the upcoming series as speculation about who will be writing for the Doctor’s next string of adventures begins.

It is already known, of course, that showrunner Steven Moffat will be back to oversee the timey-wimey proceedings for what will be his fifth series at its reigns. As such, he’ll be contributing the majority of the episodes, and, as the man in charge, he’s also responsible for hand picking the other writers who will have the privilege of leaving their mark on the Twelfth Doctor’s second series. Just think of him in his office sitting on a throne made of Dalekanium, only he’s stroking a life size figure of K-9 instead of a white fluffy cat… »

They’ve got Ben Wheatley for the opener?! If you’ve seen any of Wheatley’s work you’ll know why I was surprised and you’ll know why I was excited. It’s individual, witty and intelligent. It’s sort of the *opposite* of Love & Monsters (no I’m never letting it drop). We were promised something darker, moodier, scarier – perhaps...

Doctor Who: 10 Times The Doctor Lost

26 November 2014 2:25 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

BBC

For fifty one years now, the Doctor has been a hero to children of all ages everywhere. Armed with only his magic wand Aka sonic screwdriver, he tumbles about the universe in a box that’s bigger on the inside, righting wrongs and fighting monsters as he goes. As Peter Capaldi’s current moodier incarnation of the character shows, sometimes doing good is hard but he always manages it. The Doctor always wins. Doesn’t he?

At the end of the recent series finale, when he thought he was going to end up with blood on his hands, the Doctor said something very rare to the Master: “you win.” Of course, in this case the Doctor’s hands were wiped clean (thanks Cyberbrig) but there have been occasions when the Doctor did in fact lose.

He always saves the planet, yes, but there have been many times when the »
